Kangana Ranaut said her parents had heard stories of girls being s*xually exploited and were afraid of her moving to Mumbai. She also talked about similar incident and said, “Pahlaj Nihalani had offered me a movie – I Love You Boss. They had a photo shoot where they gave me a robe to wear, and no undergarments. So I just had a satin robe for the show-girl pose, from which I had to stick my leg out, coming out of darkness.”
Kangana Ranaut added, “I was supposed to play as young girl lusting after her middle aged boss. So it was a soft-porn sort of character. I felt like this is exactly what my parents were talking about (s*xual harassment). I actually went through the photo shoot, but later I disappeared. I changed my number.”
Now the producer Pahlaj Nihalani responded to Kangana Ranaut’ claims, and said, “I had spent one-and-a-half cr on that picture advertisement and shot for three songs. With my advertisement and the poster she got Mahesh Bhatt’s movie Gangster and backed out of my movie as she requested me to let her act in Gangster as we were under 3-movie deal.”
Pahlaj Nihalani added, “Kangana Ranaut should not play with me, otherwise I have a lot of things to play with her.”
